Fat and Trans

I update, I chat, I rant-- I get into my experiences being both fat and trans. There are an incredible amount of parallels between being fat and being trans, so I just kind of speak my mind. I also read a few poems later in the episode.

How tf do you make music for this...? I considered making a whole tuba track for it but it would've been entirely too much improvising for an hour and twenty minutes on tuba. Maybe some other time. That will be for live shows IMO.

We go totally nuts with an hour and a half long episode about final fantasy. It's a general overview of the series, so don't get too mad about how much we leave out. There is TOO MUCH to cover in one episode. Way too much. It would be impossible.

 

We identified with this game growing up, and we know we can't be the only queers in the world that found solace in the Final Fantasy game series. It is soooo fantastic. It's not actually outwardly queer or gay in any direct sense, so don't be pissed at us for "queering" something you think isn't queer. It's our perspective on the series, as flaming queers. 

 

The music on this episode was a bit of a daunting task. MIDI is not always best played on real instruments, but I did my best. If you love a certain final fantasy song and want to hear a cover, just leave it in the comments on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Youtube or Wordpress.
